Direct Link To Trailer:Ridley Scott's "Exodus"(Redone"10 Commandments")
The biblical epic of Moses has inspired generations of creatives, but Egypt has never looked as dour as in the first trailer for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings. The movie will star Christian Bale as a mean and muscular Moses, and looks set to follow the events laid out in the book of the same name. Exodus tells the story of Moses attempting to free his people from enslavement in Egypt. Expect to see plagues, burning bushes, Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul as Moses' sidekick Joshua, and of course the titular exodus, when Gods and Kings hits theaters this December.
Mr. Scott certainly knows how to ‘cash in’ as most entertainers and Hollywood types will soon be doing.
Box office receipts are down.. they’ll do ANYTHING for a paycheck...even pretend to religious sensibilities.
I hope it’s not a hatchet-job like Noah. I would love to see a well-made film faithful to the biblical narrative.
Wonder how you felt about the 1966 film “The Bible”. I haven’t seen it but wondered if you had, what you thought of it.
The old standby wasnt exactly faithful either, but it was respectful, very entertaining none the less.
It would be neat to see a plague of velociraptors instead of say, frogs.
Yes, I’ve seen it, but it’s probably been 30-35 years and I don’t have a strong opinion on it. It was a John Huston epic with a number of great actors. I think it was generally entertaining, but the way I remember it the writers took more creative license and strayed from the Bible more than I would have liked. For whatever reason it didn’t make nearly the impression on me some other Bible-based films have made. Wish I could be more helpful.
I agree. Today I’m surprised when Hollywood is respectful.
I hope it has a nonsensical script a la “Prometheus.”
Well the problem is there is almost no biblical narrative. There’s just not that much there. I’ve got zero problem with poetic license as long as you don’t put Noah skiing behind the ark
Kindly name a movie and the specific left wing ideology he espoused.
“Ridley Scott is one of the greatest directors of our time.”
You wouldn’t know it from watching “The Counselor” though. Most horrible piece of junk I’ve seen in years.
You really aren’t being fair. You’re just looking to be argumentative. Okay. “The Counselor” is the most horrible piece of junk I’ve ever seen. And I was wrong. Very wrong.
He’s not at all a director of any substance. He’s actually a horrible director. Case closed. I’m outta here.
Well, there was his Robin Hood which he made into an allegory about British/American intervention in the Middle East.
Oh, yeah, how can we forget “1492: Conquest of Paradise” with its typical leftie vilification of Europeans, or “Kingdom of Heaven” glorifying the Muslims while denigrating the Crusaders, or “GI Jane” & “Thelma & Louise” pushing the radical feminist agenda.
“You really arent being fair. Youre just looking to be argumentative.”
Nope, just pointing out that his most recent work has not been up to par, so I am not holding my breath that he gets it right this time around.
Didn’t see “1492” but your description of “Kingdom of Heaven” is what I constantly read on FR. Then I saw it, and I really didn’t see the denigration. There was an asshole Crusader, a king who was trying to keep the peace, and the Muslims were brutal as hell. They also got their asses handed to them, which was gratifying. I also had to agree with the overall lesson that “it’s just a city of landmarks, it’s not worth that much bloodshed.” Especially since I know how the story ends anyway.
